For those of you who’ve been conserving water, officials have two words for you…thank you!
New figures from the federal government show Nevada used eight-percent less Colorado River water in 2022 than it did in 2021. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation says actual water use fell by about 20-thousand-acre-feet last year.
John Entsminger, general manager of the Southern Nevada Water Authority, cites efforts to remove "nonfunctional" grass from homes and businesses, and new restrictions on swimming pools.
Between conservation efforts and rainfall, we are now in a better place with the drought than a year ago. Keep it up, Nevada!
